This was a good show, despite a few low moments. Garcia seems a bit low in the mix at times. However, Weir is right up there, which I like. He plays a great solo in Minglewood, and also adds some fine rythem work during Supplication and Scarlet, which has a nice jam at the end. Phil shines especially during Lazy Lightnin. During the rave-up Deal, the sound quality changes for the worse at the end. Around and Around begins with a cool bluesy jam into Around, which definitely got me off my seat. The dancing and the blues continued into JBG, during which Mr. Midland plays a great solo. It's nice to hear this solo actually played compared to the late '70s which Keith. Overall, surely worth listening to this show is. Especially for the powerful Let it Grow after Fire.
